The explosions occurred at a time when security agencies in the region are on high alert for the Congress’ ongoing Bharat Jodo Yatra and the upcoming Republic Day celebrations.

The National Investigation Agency team visited the site of the blasts in the morning and the federal anti-terror agency is likely to take over the case for a thorough probe, the officials said.

Officers of the probe agency spent over an hour at the scene of the blasts and collected samples before leaving. Senior officers of the Indian Army also visited the area for inspection for the second day, the officials added.

The area is still under a security cordon and a massive sanitisation operation is underway, they said.

In a related development, the Army’s White Knight Corps said a joint intelligence and security conference was held in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district to review the prevailing internal situation based on the assessments of participating agencies.
